Background Information/Biography: Parents are from Jamaica originally. His biological father and mother met at a grocery store in London, fell in love, etc. Under pressure of Death Eaters, Dean's father had to leave without a word in order to protect them. Mother later remarried, and he has two younger brothers and a younger sister--all of whom are muggle. It's one big happy family, but Dean still wonders about the reason's behind his father's leaving.
